    Lol maybe because there wasnt anybody else there? That sure was the smallest crowd I ever saw at a Coachella headliner. Come to think of it the crowd was pretty light the whole day. Well I am glad you enjoyed Jack, there were already too many people in the tent for Fatboy, Iwas hoping a few more people would have joined you lol

    "Emptychella"

    It might be true. I wasn't wasting my time walking across the field to find out.

    I didn't come into Coachella even knowing who this guy was. Was not excited to see his set. And still am not 'a fan'. But I did end the night watching maybe 1/3 of his set and I think the guy deserves a little more respect than he gets. That and I saw a 'bro rape' in progress which made the whole experience worthwhile.

    I loved how things weren't so crowded this year (except for Fatboy Slim...that was packed), but I was able to get up front for Aphex Twin 5 minutes before and halfway back for Goldfrapp 10 minutes or so before. Could have been closer because a lot of people cleared out after Mum but I needed water.

    I left Fatboy early and heard Jack Johnson broing it up about something under a mango tree. It was even worse than I thought.

    i saw the first 4 jj songs before leaving for fatboy slim. it wasn't horrible, but i'm not anti jack johnson like most on this board. I made a deal with a girl that went with me to see a JJ song before going over to fatboy slim, and we stayed for 4. it was pretty empty over there though.

    We checked out the first 4 or 5 songs & then could hear him the whole way as we made the LONG trek to lot 5.
    I guess it is not awful if you like that mellow, monotone kind of stuff.
    But what I kept thinking the whole time was that ALL his songs sound alike.
    No variation at all!

    i walked by the main stage on the way out and he didn't sound bad at all. i actually heard some pretty good things about his performance. this being said, i still don't believe he should have taken top billing. but whatever, top billing or not i still would never see more than a song or two of his. i didn't hear fatboys set but black lips owned so hard.

    i caught the whole jack johnson set from the front, and i thought it was pretty amazing. i really like how he went in to whole lotta love from staple it together. i wish he did more of express yourself during bubble toes, but the one hook did it for me.

    i ran to fatboy at the end of jack to see something that looked similar to what he was doing on a youtube video i watched a day before. I was really torn between the jack and fatboy set, but I'm glad I got to see an original jack performance.

    i don't think the argument was that he was a "bad performer" for what he is, just that his music doesn't fit with the past/present epic headliners that Coachella and its fans have become accustom to. no doubt there'd be a lot less drama about him on here if he was just on the lineup, but not a headliner.

    with that said, i walked by the main stage on my way out after Black Lips. he sounded fine, for what he is.

    I was forced to listen to a few of his songs when the beer garden near the tents was shut down early. That was about the fastest I have ever drank two glasses of wine.

    I had a good time before I fainted due to lack of water and had to be pulled from first row by the security guards.

    But before that, I was having a good time =]

    He was alright and sounded good, he's just really not headliner material. Especially coming off a performance as intense as The Verve, it just didn't work. He would have made a great sort of "3:00 outdoor stage everyone is feeling kind of chill and tired" performer, but he's not a headliner.

    Especially considering the awesome performances by Prince and Roger Waters, it made his set look pretty sorry in comparison.

    This is true, I have only seen this fuckbag once at one of those KROQ fests and a little over half of the crowd consisted of beautiful women.

    Fuck you beat me to it. Left after Pendulum, JJ filled the campsite with his sissy surfer tunes, it was ACTUALLY kind of nice getting ready for bed listening to it.

    i thought he was great. Fatboy was so packed and I was so tired. The heat got to me on Friday. I really, really enjoyed his set. and I wasn't even on planing on seeing him.
